Pre-Delivery Inspections

A pre-delivery inspection of a new ambulance is not mandatory, and there is no application form required to arrange for a pre-delivery inspection of a new ambulance. To qualify for a pre-delivery inspection, a vehicle should be ordered to comply fully with KKK-A-1822. Allow sufficient time for OEMS to schedule a pre-delivery inspection. Because of restrictions on out-of-state travel, pre-delivery inspections must be conducted at locations within Massachusetts.
